Bloggiesta update #2

I meant to post this update much earlier and it slipped my mind!

I’ve only written one review so far (ack!), but I’m still hopeful that between now and tomorrow morning I’ll be able to write a few more. (Since I’m a night owl, this is not completely outside the realm of possibility.)

I’ve completed five and a half more challenges:

Fizzy Thoughts (commented on a dozen new-to-me blogs as well as several blogs I’m already familiar with)

The Book Lady’s Blog (cleaned up my Google Reader, which meant deleting blogs that are no longer active or that I don’t really read, adding categories and renaming subscriptions to include the blogger’s name in parentheses; I also added new blogs of course!)

My Friend Amy (sent out two emails requesting official “blogger buddy” status; I haven’t heard from either of them, a fact I’m trying not to be paranoid about!)

Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile (added my name to the BlogCatalog site and updated a couple of my entries on other directories)

GalleySmith (thanks to Natasha, I already knew about the proper way to use anchor text, but I went back and fixed several of my old posts)

Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’ (signed up for a gravatar, but haven’t created a favicon yet)

I also replied to some of the comments on my blog, but I still have lots more to reply to. I may have to resort to coffee (which I’ve only had once in the last 17 years!) in order to continue bloggiesta-ing for many more hours!

Edited to add:
I forgot to mention that I’ve spent another six hours on the Bloggiesta!


  1. I just wanted to cheer you on - prompted in part by the mini challenge that Fizzy Thoughts created and because you got quite a lot done today!

    Good luck and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Thank you so much, Gaby (and thanks for becoming a follower)! Enjoy the rest of your weekend too.
